Philip Kitcher – Why is Climate Action So Hard?

The Mossman Endowment of McGill University presents the 2018 D. Lorne Gales Lecture in the History of Science

Why is Climate Action So Hard?

Professor Philip Kitcher, John Dewey Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University

Thursday, March 22 at 6:00pm

McGill University

Otto Maass Chemistry Building, Room 112

Deciding what to do about climate change is bound up with ethical questions about how to weigh the welfare of future generations against the problems of the present, about economic uncertainties, about open questions concerning technology, about the needs of developing nations, and about how to coordinate a global effort. Professor Kitcher will explore these and other topical issues at the 2018 Mossman Lecture.

Seating will be on a first come, first served basis. A light reception will follow the lecture.
